Bruce Jenner‘s gender transition has clearly been difficult for his wife of 24 years, Kris. But she speaks incredibly warmly of him – and he does the same of her – in a new promo for the upcoming E! special Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce.

“You know, Kris is a really good woman, and I love her to death,” says Bruce, 65. “And the love and acceptance I have gotten from Kris is absolutely overwhelming.”

In an earlier promo, Kris, 59, was seen struggling with the memories of their life together, saying it “sometimes feels like it didn’t exist” now that Bruce is transitioning into a woman. But in the new clip, which shows lots of old home-movie footage, she fondly recalls their early years together.

“We had so much in common that it was kind of a match made in heaven,” Kris says. “We went to races. We played golf. We went snow skiing. I mean, there wasn’t anything we didn’t do, and we could not keep our hands off each other.”

E! says the clip proves the couple’s relationship is “stronger than ever.” And in a recent New York Times profile, Kris said she just wants the best for Bruce.

“At the end of the day, I just want him to be happy,” she said. “He’s going to find his happiness, and he’s going to have his journey.”
